(Rigid) rules for fools

Should Notts Crime Commissioner, Caroline Henry, resign over her 5 “speeding” offences? No. The anonymous fools who make us drive by numbers instead of context should.

And the puerile numbers rule should be changed. A US study found that drivers who drive faster than average have the fewest accidents, yet they are the primary targets of speed enforcement.

Brake! would say that driving by context is a licence to drive without due care and attention. Wrong. It’s a bluerint for driving with true care and attention.

In March and May 2021, Henry was twice clocked doing 35 in a 30mph limit, twice doing 38, and once doing 40. How many times was she driving well below the limit? No record, of course.
